Federal Law to Require New Cars to Include BackUp Cameras by 2018

Backup Camera System for Trucks

A new rule requiring backup cameras in all new cars, SUVs, minivans and pickups weighing less than 10,000 pounds by May of 2018 has been announced by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.  All new cars, SUVs and minivans, as well as some new small trucks and buses, will be required to include backup cameras, a measure which is expected to reduce the nearly 210 backover deaths each year.  It is estimated that rear facing camera, including those automakers already offer, could save between 59 and 69 deaths a year, many of which were children.  Automakers will be allowed to “remove side –view mirrors and replace them with cameras that may expand side vision while increasing fuel efficiency”.  In February, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration decided to require vehicle to vehicle communication systems in all new cars and trucks, however an exact date for implementation of this technology has not been set.

VMAC has launched the latest UNDERHOOD30 air compressor for 2017 Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks. This rotary screw air compressor is designed to fit with the Ford 6.2L V8 gas engine, while ensuring the new truck warranty remains intact.

"Out of 25,000 VMAC UNDERHOOD air compressors installed on work trucks worldwide, about 15,000 have been on Ford trucks. We're proud to offer this 30 CFM air compressor for 2017 Ford trucks to meet our customers' needs as they upgrade their vehicles," says Mike Pettigrew, VMAC's Marketing Manager.

The VMAC UNDERHOOD30 Air Compressor for the 2017 Ford 6.2L V8 Gas is the lightest weight mobile air compressor available, weighing just 62lbs (32kg). This lightweight air compressor reduces truck GVW by up to 290lbs, offering Ford owners better fuel economy. It's also compact, freeing up to 23 cubic feet in the truck bed, allowing for more cargo space.

Even in extreme desert and arctic climates, the VMAC UNDERHOOD30 Air Compressor will continue to operate, as it is installed under the hood of the truck, protected from the elements.

"This is the third UNDERHOOD air compressor we've launched in 2017," says Mike Pettigrew. "The UNDERHOOD30 for 2017 Ford 6.2L V8 Gas trucks follows the recent launches of the UNDERHOOD30 for 2017 Ford Transit EcoBoost vans, and the UNDERHOOD70 for GMC's 2017 Sierra Duramax Diesel trucks.
